Books in the Park 2019

This program has been a regular part of our summers since 2011 "because when children don't read enough in the summer, they lose many skills they learned during the school year." This is called the "summer slide." Books in the Park is one way that we are working to combat the summer slide, by providing free books and activities in the park!

Our thanks to the Altoona Children's Council, Altoona Elementary PTO and a generous anonymous donor for supplying books over the years! Thank you also to Feed a Child Nyre You and other community partners for providing this year's free lunches!
